Company Profile and History

Superior Metal Products, LLC, Birmingham, Alabama

Superior Metal Products, LLC has served the needs of the custom window and door market since January 1978. Superior has combined manufacturing and reselling/distribution into a single-source point of purchase benefit for the custom fenestration product dealer. Purchasing and manufacturing functions are centralized in Superior's 108,000 square foot facility in Birmingham, Alabama. Material, in both lineal and finished form, are shipped from Birmingham direct to customers across the United States.

In response to ever-evolving market conditions, Superior has developed its product offerings from the original storm window, door, and screen products to also include single glazed and insulated residential replacement windows, patio covers, carports, insulated roofs and enclosures, screen enclosures, and sunrooms.

As product demand increased and many of our fabricating dealer's resource capabilities were taxed, Superior responded with the formation of Superior Windows (a division), to supply fabricated windows and doors. By reducing some of our dealer's fabrication burden, they have been able to better focus on profitable sales and installation thereby growing their business.

The 1984 addition of a Commercial Canopy Department marked Superior's entry into the sale of school, airport and institutional walkway covers and canopies. The scope of commercial sales has spanned shipping just a single canopy to a school project incorporating more than one and a quarter acres of walkway cover material.

In 1995 Superior entered the vinyl window business and began fabricating insulated double-hung tilt replacement windows, picture windows and horizontal sliding windows offered in both white and beige colors.  In January 2002, Superior partnered with Vinyl Building Products, Inc. (VBP) and introduced an all welded vinyl window series replacing the original vinyl window product line that was discontinued.  Deceuninck Corporation, a Belgian conglomerate that acquired Vinyl Building Products in the summer of 2004, continues to supply vinyl extrusions to our window division.

In 1999 Superior developed and introduced its first insulated sunroom/enclosure (Medallion Series) featuring a 2 Inch panelized wall system incorporating an aluminum horizontal sliding window made with tempered/insulated glass.  Factory assembled wall panels have reduced the installation time and allowed the dealer to increase his installed sales to his customers.

In April 2001, Superior purchased the aluminum division of Perfection Metal & Supply Company, Birmingham, Alabama.  This acquisition helped to increase Superior’s market share and dealer customer base in the Southeast.
                                                                                                                                          
In July 2002, Superior purchased the assets of Ganton Supply Company, a distributor of aluminum lineals and components located in Lithonia, Georgia.  This acquisition added to Superior’s dealer base in Georgia and the Carolina’s.

In 2003 Superior became a Department of Energy (DOE) Energy Star Partner (the energy star label has become the national symbol for energy efficiency recognized by more than 40 percent of the American public).  Superior’s all welded vinyl window products are Energy Star compliant.  Also in 2003, Superior obtained District State Architect (DSA) approval for the state of California to market/promote/sell extruded aluminum walkway cover systems to all California school districts.

In June 2004, Superior designed and introduced a 3 ¼ Inch insulated panelized wall system called the “UltraView” Sunroom.  This sunroom is comprised of both aluminum and vinyl extrusions and has been widely accepted as an exceptional sunroom by our dealer base.  In March of 2006 a tan color sunroom system was introduced to compliment the white system.

In October 2005, Superior purchased the assets of a twenty-five year old company competitor located in Tupelo, Mississippi known as Ace Metal Products.  Ace Metal was a distributor of aluminum lineals and components for replacement and storm windows marketing in the southeast.

In June of 2006, Superior purchased an eighteen year-old company located in Pell City, Alabama known as Styro-Tek, Inc.  Styro-Tek is a custom laminator of expanded polystyrene (EPS) specializing in insulated wall and roof panels used in residential and commercial construction.  The name was changed to Styro-Tek of Alabama and the company operates as a division of Superior Metal.

Superior has developed each new product, product line and department in accordance with its single-source philosophy of providing material, tooling, training and customer service to cultivate a long-term viable customer base.
